The Alden Amos Big Book of Handspinning
Author: Alden Amos
You might say that Alden Amos was there at the beginning. Not the real beginning, centuries ago, when wheel spinning began, but in the 60s and 70s, when handspinning as a craft took off in this country.
Alden was there at that time, making wheels, going to classes, writing books, and observing.
If you want a comprehensive book on all aspects of spinning, you can't go wrong with Alden's big book. This book examines every aspect of the craft of handspinning from dissolving lanolin to washing fleece, rotating wheel position, choosing wool types and much, much more.
